We’ll see a brief lull in action this morning before the next Pacific wave moves in tonight. Winds will increase out of the southwest, gusting into the 40’s or 50’s above treeline. It is going to be a white Christmas. Deep moisture and strengthening jet support aloft arrive with the trough, bringing decent snowfall to our zone beginning tonight. Flow initially begins from the southwest, putting some uncertainty in our snow numbers, but as it shifts to the west-southwest, orographics¬†become more favorable. ¬†Look for 10″ to 15″ of new snow by the end of Christmas day in the mountains
